How to install MineOS Node on Centos 7 minimal install
I am running a VM with 2GB RAM and 2 CPU cores.
This may work on other versions of Centos but I have not tested your mileage may vary (YMMV).
I did a minimal install of the Centos server. I created a user that was not an administrator and set the password of root. I do advise you to make the user and administrator so you can skip over PART 2!
Commands to run
PART 1) IF YOU DON’T KNOW YOUR IP - Get ssh access -
At the console get the ip by typing
hopefully you only have one listed, I did so moving on.
You should be able to ssh into your server using the IP address, which is what I am going to do.
So, now we are SSH’d into the server you can proceed to part 2 unless you made your user an administrator during install then go to part 3.
PART 2) get access to sudo -
If you tried to skip ahead you’ll find that your user is not in the sudoers file. For me this is because I didn’t make my user an admin back at the install gui. So, I need to do it manually. You can check if you can sudo by simply typing
sudo hostname -I
If it allows you, great! GOTO part 3, else you need to do the following.
enter the root password
replace username with your users username
gpasswd -a username wheel exit exit
That’s not a typo, you have to log out and log back in for the new group to take effect.
PART 3) update your machine -
sudo yum update -y
PART 4) install mineos-node -
sudo yum install -y epel-release sudo yum install -y nodejs npm git rdiff-backup screen java-1.7.0-openjdk wget sudo mkdir -p /usr/games cd /usr/games sudo git clone https://github.com/hexparrot/mineos-node.git minecraft cd minecraft sudo chmod +x generate-sslcert.sh sudo ./generate-sslcert.sh sudo npm install --all
PART 5) get the right rsync version-
cd ~ wget https://download.samba.org/pub/rsync/src/rsync-3.1.1.tar.gz tar -xf rsync-3.1.1.tar.gz cd rsync-3.1.1 ./configure make sudo make install sudo rm /usr/bin/rsync sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/rsync /usr/bin/rsync rsync --version
make sure that rsync says
rsync version 3.1.1 protocol version 31
PART 6) allow port 8443 through the firewall –
You have to check what firewall zone is being used. I was in public
sudo firewall-cmd --get-active-zones sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=8443/tcp --permanent sudo firewall-cmd --reload
PART 7) start mineos automatically on startup -
While you can do this, it is recommended to start the webui manually for testing and bug reporting purposes
MANUAL START COMMANDS-
cd /usr/games/minecraft sudo node webui.js
AUTOMATIC/ START ON BOOT COMMANDS-
sudo cp /usr/games/minecraft/init/systemd_conf /etc/systemd/system/mineos.service sudo systemctl enable mineos sudo systemctl start mineos sudo systemctl status mineos
CONGRATULATIONS – mineos node is now installed and should be working on your Centos 7 system, access your web ui at https://youriphere:8443
